Don't think so. Where's your proof?

2 C4H10 (g) + 13 O2 (g) 8 CO2 (g) + 10 H2O (g)
It looks a good deal if you already have a gas heater and need this. I don't have one but do need something to warm up a cold part of the house. I did a quick check on costs....

Firstly, every kg of gas (propane or butane) stored within the cylinder produces 14kw of heat energy. So to work out how much heat energy is in the cylinder we multiply the cylinder size (kg) by 14. Thus , the energy stored within a 13kg Butane cylinder is:

13 x 14 = 182kw
This probbably burns with an efficiency of around 90% (estimate)
So for £25 you get around 164kW

On that basis you are paying 15.2p per kW and if you don't have a gas heater already you will spend £50-100 in addition.

So for me, with electricity prices around 11.7p per kW/hour, it makes sense for me to just use my £10 electric fan heater to heat the room.

If I've calculated anything incorrectly please let me know and I will amend.

Hope it helps decide if you are in the same boat as me - needing a temporary heating solution
Best price either way, sure I pay double that at the petrol station
Does the empty bottle need to be the same brand?

Also would a 19kg bottle be accepted

Seems it needs to be like for like and have the flogas logo on the bottle.

That sounds like a calor gas bottle. No use to flogas.
You could look on gumtree or your local recycling tip

Great deal, well done OP
To be honest they don't seem to bother to collect my empties unless I really push the driver to take them!
But I think £5- for the bottle is still way less than calor and worth paying for peace of mind
I use them often, great price and product
There is a whole list of gas company bottles that they will accept on the website. Cal or gas is not one of them though.
How long do they last? In say a heater?

How many bars do you have on and for how long?
A full 15kg on full lasted me about 16 hrs in total. Not in one go, obviously.

They don't have a best before on them. The small one in my motorhome has been in there for 3 years
Although it's a smaller 13kg bottle as opposed to the Calor 15kg bottle they still work out a lot cheaper than the current Calor gas bottle refill prices . Thanks OP for posting, I have two Flogas empty bottles so I have just ordered two new refills.
Snap I had 2 old bottles also, seemed mad not to indulge at this price😄
These look great sat beside an open flame
Great deal! Thanks for posting
I use them, but beware, the 3-5 working days is usually 5 working days from the day after order. (I've had to chase them up in the past as well, when they've taken longer.)
I have absolutely no use for this, but at this price bought 2.
great deal

You may also like to note that for every 13Kg of gas you burn, you'll put about 9Kg of water into your property - and that's a lot of condensation!

if using on BBQ for the summer remember you need a blue butane Regulator, a previous deal they gave them free with a new bottle

It does go up the chimney along with the CO2 though...

If you're using it in an enclosed space without a chimney, you've got bigger things to worry about than the water TBH.

All the prices on that site seem pretty good, annoying that the only size they seem to be missing is 6kg propane (which is what I need). Heat given anyway!

If you click on the link the OP has posted, you will see its a 21mm regulator...
Can someone remind me what gas is best for summer BBQ? Currently have both Butane and Propane cans. Remember one being better for colder weather.

Propane freezes at a lower temp and mainly outdoor use. bupane can be used outside and in, but won't run properly lower than a couple of degrees centigrade
Mobile home occupants without mains gas use a large 47kg propane bottle for heating and cooking. I have never known propane to freeze outside. Propane is used in gas BBQ and it's painted green to blend in
Butane is for indoor use and is mainly used in heaters. It may freeze if left outside in extreme cold weather.
Anyone got a refund instead of a delivery? Just got an email that gasdeal oversold and FloGas cannot supply
